One thought on “Saturday Reading

  1. I didn’t rate Scales of Injustice. Some good things about it (the Liz/Doctor farewell you mention in your link above), but most of it felt like a rather tedious rehash of the Silurians & Sea-Devils, and the “which Sergeant shall I promote directly to Captain, completely ignoring the difference between commissioned officers and NCOs” subplot really annoyed me. It distorts Benton & Yates’ relationship, and it isn’t the way the Army works. I realise it’s a bit odd complaining about this in the context of a fantasy show with much, much weirder things going on, but I think it reflects how little I was enjoying the book that I couldn’t just set it aside as a false note in an otherwise OK work.

    Who Killed Kennedy? I thought was terrific; myself I might even rank it above The Sands of Time.
